TUESDAY HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS AND ALIENATE PEOPLE
7.30PM FOXTEL COMEDY This is one of those comedies where you will be squirming from beginning to (almost the) end. Simon Pegg ( HotFuzz) stars as a bitter and twisted British journo who lands a job at the US’s hottest celebrity magazine, only to blow his big opportunity with one embarrassing indiscretion after another. Not for all tastes, but if you can handle the cringeinducing humour of Ricky Gervais’s TheOffice, this will be a comparative breeze. Costars Kirsten Dunst.
Does Ron (a superb Will Ferrell) want in? No need to answer that. Along the way, Ron goes blind. Ron raises a killer shark from birth. Ron pays for perms for everyone. Ron thinks that psychiatrists are psychics. You get the picture. And you will get the jokes, of which there are literally hundreds.
